Greetings again from the darkness from the Dallas International Film
Festival. Social Media has changed so much about society: how
information is dispersed, how we present ourselves, how we argue points
of view, and even how relationships are structured. This documentary
from Sophie Deraspe explores each of these points by dissecting a real
world chain of events.
With events taking place during Syria's Arab Spring of 2011, Amina
Arraf started a blog entitled "A Gay Girl in Demascus", where she wrote
about both the dangers of being a lesbian in Syria, and the larger
societal issues being faced by the populace living in the shadows of a
dominating government regime. Her brave words garnered many followers,
while also instigating an online romance with Sandra from Canada.
A few months later, Amina's blog entries suddenly halt and the concern
from Sandra and other readers spreads to international media outlets.
Ms. Deraspe offers an interesting blend of styles in her approach. On
one hand, some of the first images we see come across as a deep artsy
film; and then next thing we are getting is talking head interviews
with reporters and other concerned followers mixed with actual TV
newscasts from the period.
In order to avoid any spoilers, suffice to say that the story comes in
two distinct parts. The second half provides some fascinating
psychological studies in regards to trust and narcissism, while also
forcing us to further question the complacency of news outlets in this
new age of readily available information. As the proverbial onion
layers are peeled back, we can't help but wonder who can be trusted and
what steps are sufficient for verification.
Probably the biggest takeaway stems from the realization of just how
easily we are manipulated and distracted by media outlets who determine
what is "news" (what brings ratings) and what can be overlooked
often more serious topics such as the Syrians who are still "dying in
the dark". This excellent documentary will provide no shortage of
material for discussion and soul-searching.
